Whip the Galaxy: Our Annual Car Show
Around the beginning of August, we at The Launch Pad were brainstorming ideas for new events for teens to take part in. We knew that there is a substantial number of teens in the Tri-City area with a passion for working on cars and expressing their individuality. With that in mind, we wanted to host a teen car show to allow younger enthusiasts the opportunity to show off their creation. Because while there are countless car shows that take place in Prescott throughout the year, there wasn’t any that catered to teen drivers, and we wanted to change that.
Fast forward 3 months and with the help of Prescott Tire Pros, Magic 99.1, and BBVA Compass Bank, that idea came to fruition. We started off not having a clue as to how a car show even works. But thanks to wonderful folks like Louie Gomez at Prescott Tire Pros, the show went off with better results than we could have asked for. With live music, food and drink vendors, booths from Prescott Auto Body and Mountain Institute JTED, and over 180 people in attendance, the show was a complete success! Teen drivers won prizes for best in show, and even best work in progress.
2017 and the Future
Now with 2017 here, we are excited to announce that the teen car show saga will continue. We are currently working to bring you an even better car show than we did in 2016.
